Women & Waves: Shore Thing
Surfing Australia received funding to developed Shore Thing presented by ROXY.
The program takes a holistic approach to creating long term positive behaviour change and encourages more women and girls to be active in, on or around the ocean. The program offers physical, mindful and social benefits at every session, ensuring they leave feeling rejuvenated, revitalised and reconnected.
Program deliverers, known as Mentors, were trained at Surfing Australia's High Performance Centre in Casuarina in NSW to provide them with the suite of skills and attributes to deliver Shore Thing presented by ROXY and effectively connect with their local communities.
Mentors were connected through ongoing training and development and an online communication platform to continue the shared experiences. Chair of the board and surfing legend Layne Beachley was hands-on in supporting their training, offering guidance and support as they navigate this new path.
